I just recalled that some UPSes will refuse to run a deep discharge  
test when the battery isn't fully charged and/or need to be charging  
continuously for an 'X' amount of hours (with 'X' typically being 12  
to 24). So chances are this will work again if you wait a day or so.

Best regards, Arjen

PS  Also, be advised that running deep discharge tests wear out your  
battery, so you should only run these once every three to six months  
(at most).
